happy spring everyone. whenever winter starts to fade away and the days get warmer, the clothes get less restrictive, the layers start to disappear and dresses make their fabulous comeback, flowers bloom and teenagers kiss, whenever spring awakens, this is the song that gets stuck in my head. i hope you enjoy it.
i love this song. i love katie. her voice is unique, soothing, different and her covers are always unexpected. she is fantastically creative and i’m always impressed with the harmonies she comes up with. she recreates these songs so that they sound entirely different and sometimes take on entirely new meanings yet upon listening, you can still hear whispers of the original tunes. i simply love what she does and i hope one day she and i can collaborate on something (hint hint katie).
Ky and I recorded this a few days before I left the Spinnerei— it was just meant to be a sort of rough sketch so that we’d have something to show Marcel when he came ‘round with the guitar. I had a terrible cold, you can hear me sniffling throughout the whole thing, and there is that tinny, congested sound to my voice, but I don’t know, I actually like it better than our more polished version. Listening to this takes me right back, it’s crazy how that happens.
Anyway, this is us doing In the Pines, my favorite Leadbelly song. Maybe my favorite song in general. I miss this girl very much.
